Ok, I need to open with a disclaimer, my opinion on this set may be slightly compromised. When Toy Story was released in 1995 I was exactly the target audience. So much so, when people ask me what my favorite movie is I tell them Toy Story. Now it's probably not my favorite all the time but people don't like you giving them a full list of favorite movies for each mood. I used to like to pretend that my toys came to life when I was sleeping, and out of fear of upsetting one of them I made the extra effort to say goodnight to them all. Does this Toy Story set bring back all those feelings I had as a kid? Can't wait to find out.
One of the mistakes LEGO made during their Dark Ages, is thinking children don't want to build, they want to play! So they made all kinds of large, single-use parts to make the build go as fast as possible, resulting is themes like Jack Stone. Many are saying, LEGO is returning to those mistakes with the 4+ (and before the Juniors) themes. Do they have a point?
